I have four browsers on my computer. They are:

  • Internet Explorer 8
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Safari
  • Opera

The default browser is Firefox. My problem is that sometimes the other browsers (except Firefox) will not load any pages.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Please explain in more detail. How are you attempting to load the pages? For instance, are you using bookmarks? Typing a URL? Will the other browsers open a local HTML page? – CarlF Oct 5 '09 at 17:29
You should install google chrome for the fun of it. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 5 '09 at 17:33

have to agree with the posted answers: shouldn't be any problem. when problems happen, what errors are you getting? more info needed. – quack quixote Oct 5 '09 at 21:55

There's no inherent problem with having all 4 of those browsers installed; all are separate programs and (theoretically) shouldn't interfere with each other. Try reinstalling one of the 3 problematic ones to see if it starts working.

I myself also use quite a lot of browsers at the same time. Including browsers in VMs. I think I have around a dozen right now... It can be very convenient and also for testing purposes while developing web sites. I have never encountered any trouble. – Damien Dec 17 '09 at 1:32

Theoretcailly, if there's no installation problems and everything is where it should be, then there should be no problem with the other 3.

Try re-installing them, checking all of your internet options in each one and make sure they all point to your internet source.
